You say you are on row 59 of 60. Since you gave no indication of what pattern you are using, it's not easy to know how to respond.

1. Is row 60 the last row of the entire afghan? Is so, I would simply end one row short (if it doesn't upset the pattern) - on a queen size blanket, one row wouldn't make that much difference.

2. Or does the pattern repeat every 60 rows? If so, how many repeats do you still need to work? How much of the blanket have you already done? (half? three quarters? 72 of 84 inches?)

If you do find more of the same color, the dye lot may not match exactly, and the difference will show. (Even "no dye lot" colors may not match exactly.) Do you have a way to handle that possibility?

3. If necessary, is there another way you could make the blanket big enough? For example, could you add a border of a different color at each end, or on all sides?

Perhaps some others will have suggestions as well on how to handle your situation.
